Quicken Update Failing under Crossover on Linux

cdennett Member ✭✭✭

Is anyone running Quicken under Linux using crossover (a software package that allows the user to run Windows programs on a Linux system)? I've been doing it for a few weeks now (windows 10 system died) and it works great. So today, a patch for Quicken was released. The first patch since I started doing this. The patch fails to download when Quicken starts.

So, once Quicken is running, I click on the Help menu item, select Check for Updates. It finds the update and asks if I want to install it. I say yes and I get a popup with the message "Unable to check for updates, the server file failed to load". There is a detail section but it is blank.

I know there are others running Quicken this way. Anyone else doing this have an issue?

    Try downloading the latest available for general distribution (not still in staged release) from this link:

    Hopefully, your issue is the Quicken links getting getting scrambled in the Crossover/Linux lash up and running the patch release directly gets around the issue.

    At the moment, R52.20 is the latest general release and R52.28 is in staged release, but should be available in the next day or two.
